Product description

A lifetime of wilderness adventures and the resulting insights relating to nature s intricacies as experienced by a master in the art of primitive wilderness survival. ""Fire! Wake up! The shelter is on fire!""His students affectionately call him "Doc Survival." He s Quebec s Indiana Jones in a forest setting. Searching for the treasures of the wilderness has been his life-long quest; with passion as his only guide, he has dared to penetrate the forest on its own terms, facing increasingly difficult challenges in the hope of becoming nature s confidant, of learning her secrets.Professor emeritus Andre-Francois Bourbeau holds a Guinness World Record for voluntary wilderness survival in the boreal forest. Herein lies his path and his stories, unadulterated: gritty and often comical mistakes punctuated by inspiring successes. What remains of this lifetime of experimentation is one man s everlasting love of the wilderness and its intricacies, a rousing reflection on our own human priorities, and need for deep connection with the environment and other fellow beings."
